If you are injured on property that is owned, leased, or controlled by another individual, company, or other entity, you may have a case based on premises liability. The element of control is important because only the party that can remedy hazardous conditions existing on the property are liable. Property owners, landlords, and business entities all owe the individuals coming onto their property, guests, tenants, shoppers, and workers, a duty to make the premises safe and to correct dangerous conditions.
Due to the different parties that can own a property, it is difficult to determine in some instances who had control. Goodin Abernathy LLP has the experience in investigating premises liability cases to determine who not only owned the property, but who had control of it.
